MOVING, DUPLICATING, AND DELETING PERFORMANCE PANEL CLIPS
• Move clips
To move a clip or clips, simply click and drag to another grid location. To select multiple clips, click and drag a box around the clips by starting in a blank area of the grid (i.e. no clips in the grid).
• Duplicate clips
To duplicate a clip or clips, simply click and drag to another grid location while holding the [ALT] modifier key. To duplicate select multiple clips, click and drag a box around the clips by starting in a blank area of the grid and drag to empty grid locations while holding the [ALT] modifier key.
Dragging clips to an occupied grid location overwrites the existing clip, so careful, loopmaster!
• Selecting Sets
To select an entire set for editing, right-click in the set name area at the top of the Performance Panel grid and click Select in the pop-up menu.
• Duplicating Sets
To duplicate a set, right-click in the set name area at the top of the Performance Panel grid and click Duplicate. The entire set (i.e. all clips in the vertical column) will be copied to the next column over to the set’s right. Duplicate behaves as an “insert” function, so if there is a set (or sets) to the right of the one being duplicated, existing sets will be shifted over one column, and Mixcraft automatically creates new sets if necessary.
• Delete Set
Sets can be deleted by right-clicking in the set name area and selecting Delete in the pop-up menu. Existing sets to the right of the deleted set will shift over. Just like a spreadsheet, but more fun!
• Resizing the Performance Panel Grid
Column widths can be adjusted by hovering the cursor between the set names at the top of the Performance Panel - when the cursor becomes left/right arrows, simply hold down the mouse button and slide horizontally to resize.
Vertical grid size follows a track’s vertical sizing. You can resize tracks vertically by hovering between track names in the track list; click and drag vertically when the mouse becomes up/down arrows. To reset to default height, right-click a track and select Properties>Height>Small/Normal/Large in the pop-up menu.
